G
I was twenty and she was eighteen 
                 C					        G			   C
 We were just about as wild as we were green in the ways of the world
          G
She'd pick me up in that red ragtop
                C
 we were free of the folks and hiding from the cops
         G                                      Cadd9
on a summer night, runnin all the red lights 
             G
so we'd park way out in a clearing in a grove 
            C
and the night was as hot as a coal burnin stove 
	  G
we were cookin with gas, 
        Cadd9
oh it had to last
                             C   G   Am
 in the back of that red rag top
              C        G     Am                                  
(some various picking.)  
 she said please dont stop
(silent)  G
well the very first time her mother met me 
       C                                                              G                          C
her green eyed girl had been a mother to be for two weeks 
         G
i was out of a job and she was in school
C
life was fast and the world was cruel 
              G
we were young and wild,
                            C
we decided not to have a child 
         G
so we did what we did and we tried to forget
            C                                                                            G
and we swore up and down there would be no regrets in the morning light 
                        Cadd9
but on the way home that night 
                             C   G    Am
on the back of that red rag top 
             C         G    Am              G                Cadd9
she said please dont stop loving me 
              C            G      Am        G
we took one more trip around the sun 
                C               G              Am
and it was all make believe in the end 
       C          G              Am G
no i cant say where she is today 
                   C             G             Am                                          
(some various picking.)
i cant remember who i was back then 
             G
well you do what you do 
                                                       C
and you pay for your sins and theres no such thing as what might have been 
           G
thats a waste of time, 
               C
drive you out of your mind 
         G                                                       C
i was stopped at a red light just yesterday beside a young girl in a cabriolet 
            G
and her eyes were green 
                        Cadd9
and i was in an old scene 
                           C    G   Am
i was back in that red rag top 
           C    G   Am                  G            Cadd9
on the day she stopped lovin me 
                           C   G    Am
i was back in that red rag top 
           C    G  Am                  G
on the day she stopped lovin me
